displaying sports scores, statistics, injury reports
and rotisserie league information along the bottom of
the screen during commercial breaks.
"The integration of ESPN.com's
in-depth online content with ESPNNews's video, graphic
and audio elements will provide fans the ultimate and
most comprehensive television sports news service."
ESPN President George Bodenheimer said.
ESPNNews, which launched the
network in 1996 with 1.5 million homes and is now
available in 23 million homes, also plans to unveil a
